Opposition to discuss Azadi March’s Plan C today


November 21, 2019

Sindh leaders of all the nine political parties of the Rahbar Committee, a body of their alliance against the federal government, are scheduled to meet today (Thursday) to discuss the Azadi March’s Plan C in Karachi and formulate a strategy to arrange district-wise protests against the federal government.

The Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) held a meeting in Sukkur in which it decided to discuss the political situation with allies following the party’s announcement on Tuesday of ending road blockages in different cities of the country, including Karachi, under the Plan B of the anti-government protests.

Rashid Mehmood Soomro, the JUI-F’s provincial secretary general, said participants of the meeting discussed the future plans of the ongoing protest and implementation of the Plan C.

As part of the next phase of the protest campaign, the opposition parties have agreed to collectively hold public meetings at district levels throughout the country.

“Today [Thursday] noon, leaders of the opposition parties will meet in Karachi to discuss the future plan of action of the ongoing anti-government protest,” Soomro said. He said that participants of the JUI-F meeting had expressed their confidence in the decisions of the party supremo Maulana Fazlur Rehman regarding the campaign against the federal government.

Soomro will preside over the meeting today in which provincial leaders of the Pakistan Peoples Party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Awami National Party, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party, National Party and others will participate.

The JUI-F has also decided to hold a gathering, titled ‘Shaheed-e-Islam and Azadi March Conference’, to mark the death anniversary of the party’s slain provincial secretary general Dr Khalid Mehmood Soomro on November 28 in Sukkur. He was assassinated in an attack in Sukkur on November 28, 2014. The party will also stage protests across the province on November 29.
